The Grow Your Own Cutting Garden course was well organised, motivating, fun and informative. Comprehensive notes were provided and explained in detail by Sarah Raven with helpful examples and demonstrations. The walk around the cutting garden at Perch Hill in the company of the head gardener and deputy head gardener was equally delightful, including time in the poly tunnel discussing propagation. All questions were answered thoroughly and enthusiastically throughout the day. The other students were very friendly and as keen to learn as I was. And lunch in a beautiful converted barn was delicious! Many thanks to everyone, I learnt a lot an went away far more confident that I can crate what I want in my garden.

I attended the Cutting Garden course on Thursday 27th March and I just wanted to thank you and to say how much I enjoyed it.

I have never had any interest in gardening and only came along with my Mum as part of her 60th birthday present. I really had a great time and have now decided to take up gardening as a hobby and have already written out my order form for seeds to plant. :)

I felt I learnt a lot, even as a beginner, and I intend to make my garden a beautiful, tranquil place.

My favourite part of the day was meeting Sarah's dog, who followed us around, he is absolutely gorgeous (as well as Fiona the cat!). Also, the food was very delicious. Very unusual and very yummy.

All team members were very friendly and helpful. I love the Emma Bridgewater mugs, lots of tea and the homemade biscuits.

We had a wonderful day and hope to attend another course next year.

Informative and Friendly
